  • What Is Jizya?

    السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته,

    A few days ago me and my friend were talking about something Islam related which I can't recall as of now and he brought up Jizya, what I know right now about it is that if you're a non muslim living in an Islamic state you have to pay tax in return for protection etc.

    So what I was wondering was if someone were not to pay it or whatever what would happen? and, how much was the tax?

    Jazakallah.

    Jizya was applied to every non-muslim adult male (of military age) and women, children, the elderly and monks were exempt from paying it. I think the rate was dependant on wealth and failure to pay would resort in to imprisonment. (Bit like what would happen to you if you failed to pay tax to the government today)
